Doggerland, a huge area of dry land that stretched from Scotland to Denmark was slowly submerged by water between 18,000 BC and 5,500 BC. Divers from oil companies have found remains of a 'drowned world' with a population of tens of thousands - which might once have been the 'real heartland' of Europe.

The temple complex of Raqchi Having been in Peru for a couple of weeks and spending most of our time amongst ancient Inca ruins I feel like this blog has gotten a bit too archaeological. However, on our way from Cusco to Puno we stopped off at a quite different but equally wonderful set of Inca ruins in Raqchi. I guess that is the thing about the Incas, they constructed an amazing array of towns, forts and ceremonial centres in little more than a century of empire building and they are everywhere you go in Peru. Set amidst beautiful countryside and surrounded by imposing mountains on a clear, crisp morning Raqchi is an impressive and moving sight, and one that could be easily overlooked as you speed past the modern-day village on the road between Cusco and Puno. Temple complex at Raqchi, Peru Raqchi was a major religious centre and home to a temple complex and palace that housed the great and the good of the Inca world.

Have enormous megaliths been discovered in Southern Siberia, or are they a rare product of nature? A series of incredible photographs have been released by Dr Valery Uvarov, Head of the Department of Palaeoscience, Palaeotechnology, and UFO Research of the National Security Academy of Russia, following an expedition to the mountains of Gornaya Shoria in Southern Siberia. The photographs appear to depict a set of enormous megaliths and Dr Uvarov is convinced they are man-made structures. Others, however, have argued that they are simple a rare example of the power and wonder of Mother Nature. An expedition headed by Georgy Sidorov was undertaken a team of 19 researchers following information about the existence of a large number of strange megalithic objects on Gornaya Shoria, a mountain reaching 1,100 metres above sea level, and situated in a remote part of Russia which had previously been blocked off by checkpoints during the era of the Soviet Union.

Dr. Robert Schoch and Alternative Human History E.I.R.S. has teamed up with Geologist and University Professor Dr. Robert Schoch in our research efforts of Alternative World History. Our true human history is slowly coming to discovery through the extensive researches of geologists and geophysicists like Robert Schoch. 'Grand Canyon' Discovered Beneath Antarctic Ice - The drop is so severe and the rift so long, scientists knew they'd found something exciting immediately. - The scientists were hoping to discover why the region had higher-than-average melt. - The rift may be part to blame for the melting. If it extends into the warmer sea, it could cause more rapid glacial deterioration. A dramatic gash in the surface of the Earth that could rival the majesty of the Grand Canyon has been discovered secreted beneath Antarctica's vast, featureless ice sheet. Dubbed the Ferrigno Rift for the glacier that fills it, the chasm's steep walls plunge nearly a mile down (1.5 kilometers) at its deepest.

The Bucegi mountain secrets - Hidden From Humanity. Ancient tunnels reveal our true history This page contains excerpts of the discovery plus two years of my research finding confirmations throughout history... In the summer of 2003, in an unexplored area of the Bucegi mountains in Romania, an epochal discovery was found that would completely change the destiny of mankind. Section "I" contains excerpts from the book. Section "II" onwards is my own research regarding this discovery. I apologise in advance for such a lengthy page but some things cannot be explained in a few sentences. To prevent this page from being five times longer I have only covered the absolute basics for each section of my own research but anyone who wishes to discuss this further can click here contact me.

Michael Tellinger: 200,000 Year Old Cities Discovered In Africa that Confirm Zecharia Sitchin’s Writings [video] In this fascinating interview with George Noory, scientist and author Michael Tellinger discusses his study of ancient ruins at the southern tip of Africa that are over 200,000 years old. Tellinger believes that the area was once inhabited by ET visitors known as (from the works of Zecharia Sitchin) the Annunaki, who came to Earth to mine gold. The ruins, which he’s investigated along with Johan Heine, consist of thousands of stone structures over a large area.

Prehistoric North Sea 'Atlantis' hit by 5m tsunami 30 April 2014Last updated at 20:28 ET By Paul Rincon Science editor, BBC News website A prehistoric "Atlantis" in the North Sea may have been abandoned after being hit by a 5m tsunami 8,200 years ago. The wave was generated by a catastrophic subsea landslide off the coast of Norway. Analysis suggests the tsunami over-ran Doggerland, a low-lying landmass that has since vanished beneath the waves. "It was abandoned by Mesolithic tribes about 8,000 years ago, which is when the Storegga slide happened," said Dr Jon Hill from Imperial College London. Continue reading the main story

So you think the flooding of landmass by the oceans is a new? So you must have not heard of the times when people walked from London to Amsterdam. Doggerland is the name of a vast plain that joined Britain to Europe for nearly 12,000 years, until sea levels began rising dramatically after the last Ice Age.Taking its name from a prominent shipping hazard—Dogger Bank—this immense landbridge vanished beneath the North Sea around 6000 B.C. Like all landbridges, Doggerland seems to have been a pretty busy thoroughfare for ancient hunters and gatherers.But archaeologists hardly gave it a thought until 2002, when a small group of British researchers laid hands on seismic survey data collected by the petroleum industry in the North Sea. It is thought that the sea level rose no faster than about one or two meters per century, and that the land would have disappeared in a series of punctuated inundations.
